West Indies built from their overnight score of 69/1 and maintained the intent of scoring on a slow and dead pitch. Darren Bravo (87) and Marlon Samuels (76) were amongst the runs after a solid and yet patient display of batting that left Pakistan frustrated at times.

At close of play, the visitors were 315/6 in the first Test in Dubai and hoping to reduce their deficit of 264 runs that still lay ahead of them.

Wahab Riaz struck two quick blows on West Indies with Yasir Shah also getting two.
